6. WARNING. TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS.
This podcast was hard for me to record, but it had to be done. I pray that you all truly listen, seek, and repent to God in regards to New Age practices. I know it may seem cool that everyone else is doing it, but God is telling you to steer from it. We're living in a moment where people are claiming "faith", but still turn to sage and crystals for what they think is instant gratification. This is hard for me to say because I know a lot of you are sucked into this way of thinking, and I do not want to offend anyone by any means, but this needed to be said. I can't sit back and watch you guys dig your graves. We all have to account for our actions. I am not perfect, nor do I have all the answers, but as a vessel for God, I have to be obedient on what He tells me to post on my platform. I hope this word falls on good soil. Be blessed.
If you think I'm just taking gibberish, here are some verses that speak to this:
Colossians 2:8-9: Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.
Romans 1:21-25: 21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11: 9 This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. 10 He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. 11 So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies.
Deuteronomy 18:9-12: 9 “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. 10 For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering.[a] And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, 11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you.
